An OBX Update
By Anne MeadOuter Banks Expedition leaders report that their group is doing well and that they are all enjoying the coast! The first day of OBX was spent playing get to know you games, establishing group norms, having a Respect Circle, doing a swim review, having free swim, cooking their own grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch to get used to using stoves, and cooking a dinner of grilled chicken, potatoes, carrots, and celery. The day was ended with a Talking Shell Ceremony.
Today, lessons revolved around parts of a boat, paddle, and pfd, and how to do wet exits and self rescues in kayaks. We’ll keep you posted as we continue to get updates from OBX!
